London council worker's bus odyssey sparks Twitter storm

The BBC reported on 23rd August that when Jo Kibble, a 39-year-old council employee from Greenwich, set out to travel as far as he could from London in one day only using public bus routes it was supposed to be a personal project. But he ended up sparking a Twitter storm, causing a debate about how to build a fairer country along the way.

"I like travelling by public transport and by bus; I think it's a great way to see the country," Mr Kibble explains.

But what interested us at High Peak the most about his expedition was that a highlight of his journey was travelling through the Peak District on the Trans Peak service.  Mr Kibble said."Derby to Buxton is absolutely stunningly beautiful; gorgeous villages, lovely streams and hills and sheep. It is classic tourist country but happens to be on a very good, very fast public transport link."

We are glad Mr Kibble enjoyed his trip on the TP2/3 and he is more than welcome on our buses again any time.  Meanwhile, you too can enjoy the views of the Peak District on our Trans Peak any at time.
